They did pull it for a little while but they aired it again here in early April.I think they just gave it a six
month absence out of respect.

ok...i guess i missed them announcing the return...i figured some one popped it in by accident...

it was eerie watching it, and then RIGHT after the end credits the 10pm news has a bumper talking about the "Search for closure" from the attacks...

*Sniff* I'm glad that episode is back, I loved it.

Guy in Tower: Hey when you're done with that, I've got something up here you can bite off!
Guy in Tower 2: Hey why don't you be polite you stinking puss bag?! [to Homer] Pal, you gotta call the number on the boot. Sorry about that guy. They stick all the jerks in Tower one.}
Man in Tower: That's it! I'm coming over there.
they yell at each other until a third guy - in a higher
floor in tower 1 - has a voice which is louder than both]
Other Guy: SHUT UP THE BOTH OF YA'S!!!

Speaking of pulled episodes, has anyone seen the masturbation contest episode of Seinfeld since JFK Jr. died? I'm sure they pulled it for a while, but come to think of it, I haven't seen it once since his death...

I've seen it - that is to say, I've seen the last two minutes of it...which is all the "Seinfeld" I've been watching these days, the bit right before prime time (and the show I tuned in for) starts.

It's strange because my whole life used to revolve around catching these things when they originally aired, but for some reason I can't stand most of them in reruns. Come to think of it, towards the end I was kinda getting tired of the show......hmm.....

My personal opinion is that Seinfeld stuck around two or three years after it was really funny (probably having something to do with the departure of Larry David), and The Simpsons has stuck around much, much longer than that, probably five or six years by now after it peaked (probably having something to do with the departure of Conan O'Brien). I'm not saying it's not funny anymore, but, it sure ain't the same. The NY episode is a perfect example of something that I found to be lame in comparison to the previous standard.

Well back to the Simpson,they just aired the episode in which Bart goes to a indian casino and see's his future and Lisa is president.When Lisa sends Bart to Camp David,Krusty did this joke.

"What is the difference between a pancake and Pakistan?"

"The pancake didn't get nuked by India"

Or something to that extent,It looks like,If everything stays the way it is now they might have to pull that episode too.

I just thought I'd bring that to everyone attentions.

I still don't see the point of not airing those episodes. "Pulling" an episode is blatant use of censorship and is crap. So what's going to be next then, Clinton stubs his toe and they pull all Simpsons episodes making fun of Clinton. For WTC...I can ALMOST understand it, but still...it was a bit ridiculous.
